Our story

Breakfree Psychology Services in Townsville originated out of a desire to spend my working hours using therapies I truely believe can make a significant positive difference in the lives of my clients. Therapies that get to the heart of issues, that provide understanding, that have clear easy to use strategies for lasting change, while also making the therapy session the first place to facilitate this change.

Elizabeth is the founder of Breakfree Psychology Services and a Psychologist with expertise in clinical psychology and over 15 years experience treating clinical presentations. She is registered with the Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA) and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulatory Agency (AHPRA), a member of the Australian Association of Psychologists Inc (AAPI), and the International Society of Schema Therapists (ISST). Elizabeth’s preferred practice is to use Schema Therapy with individuals and Gottman Couples Therapy with couples. Elizabeth is a Level 3 Trained Gottman Couple’s Therapist, an Advanced Trained Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and an Advanced Trained ACT Therapist.

Elizabeth is one of the few psychologists in North Queensland who is highly trained in the Gottman method for couples counselling and skilled in treating couples with conflict, unfulfilling relationships, and specific relationship problems using the Gottman Method of Couples Counselling. This approach was developed from research conducted by the Gottman Institute over the last 40 years, into what makes relationships work. Also, one of few psychologists in the north who is highly trained in Schema Therapy, a particularly helpful approach for treating individual adults who have experienced considerable personal, social, and occupational disruption throughout their life. This Schema Therapy approach addresses the root cause of these problems, which assists individuals in finally being able to breakfree from the emotional pain, that is the result of repeatedly having to face these upsets in life.
